I'm new and don't know where this should go. This Naxos recording has some of the best classical vocal rendtion known to me. Enchanting if melancholic opera in English. Just got it. Saw it in London on a two week stay. At the time couldn't wait for intermission to slug back a couple of whiskeys, I have to confess, but my tastes have expanded a lot since then. Endearing to me now and I'm serious about the recording. Large stage, large house, fine placement and very fine realism to the vocalists. Ya'll be cool.
